It’s Spring but where are the blooming flowers and warm weather? IMG_9151 2 IMG_9158 2 IMG_9199 2 IMG_9186 2 IMG_9155 2 IMG_9185 2

Cropped Sweater- Zara, Floral Dress- Forever 21, Coat- Zara, Boots- Jeffrey Campbell

I feel like it’s about time that the weather here in New York stopped fooling around and give us some consistency. I’m so tired about complaining about the weather and I just want it to be warm already.

For this look I juxtaposed a floral dress and layered it under my cropped sweater with a black skinny pant. Since I technically can’t wear a full on mini spring dress without freezing to death, I thought it would be cool to start combining my spring clothes with the more winter items. Soon enough I’ll be pulling out all my fun Spring wear but for now I’ll have fun experimenting.

After the snow melts and the sun comes out, the heels come to play.IMG_8956 IMG_8938 IMG_8934 IMG_9041 IMG_9051 IMG_9009 IMG_9004 IMG_9001 IMG_8925

Sweater- Necessary Clothing, Flannel Shirt- Similar, Amaya Boots- Miista 

So I’m not sure whats it with me, but I’ve been particularly obsessed with this bright royal/cobalt blue and green combination. Something about two primary colours could seem a little odd and use to throw me off sometimes but clearly not anymore. It’s finally getting warm enough here in New York so I can start to wear more of my skirts and dresses again very soon.

For this look, I took a little throwback grunge element from one of my past looks…which is this beautiful olive green sweater that I ripped up quite a bit. Underneath, I thought it would be nice to layer with a complimentary flannel skirt with my favourite biker jacket. I kept it pretty simple with the make-up, I’m been going a lot more clean around the eyes instead of my usual dark cat eye, mainly because I kind of like an almost all natural look. Let me know what you think of this post, I can’t wait to start posting more often again and thanks a lot of visiting!

Plaid and knits in the Winter, for a chill day out in the city.IMG_8841IMG_8867 IMG_8826 IMG_8921 IMG_8905 IMG_8893

Beanie- Urban Outfitters, Boots- Zara, Pants- H&M, Biker Jacket- H&M

Things have been so hectic for me, juggling about a thousand projects all at once, making it quite difficult to manage my time better with blogging. I’ve missed it so much and finally decided to drop everything and post this look I wore a few weeks back, just before I was heading out to have lunch in the city.

Chunky, cozy sweaters have always been a strong go-to for me mainly because I get to be warm and comfortable yet I’m able to dress the look up or down if I choose to. Here I’m wearing this tan shade sweater that I possible stole from my sister because I knew she was never going to wear it, and I paired it with my plaid trousers  for a touch of print that wasn’t screaming “look at me” but, was more of a nice compliment to the neutral of the sweater. I had to wear a huge coat over this entire look but for the purpose of showing the look I opted to leave the coat behind and show the styling with my favourite biker jacket.

I’ll definitely be back to blogging more regularly very soon! thanks so much for being patient with me and I read all your lovely comments <3  have an awesome week.

Just Another Moment

Styled in a very comfy attire, just before heading to my classes .

Sweater- Forever 21, Neoprene Skirt- Zara, Dolman Coat- H&M, Platform Boots- UNIF

I can’t believe I went through most of the Winter  completely forgetting about this sweater which I adore so much. Though I’ve had it for quite sometime, it’s still very comfort piece for me and is super easy to layer on top of anything.

For this look, I paired it with my mini neoprene skirt and an oversized Dolan coat as an additional layer. This is a very simple look for me, mainly because I’m not wearing too many layers and its a look I’d wear this on a typical day to classes. It’s nice when you can put together a look that is simple and to the point, especially on days when you’re in a rush to get to your destination.

Sweater- Romwe  Vest- Necessary Clothing  Skirt- Necessary Clothing   Hat- Tillys  Boots- H&M

It’s been awhile since I’ve worn this this beautiful digitally printing sweater that I got about two years ago from Romwe. I remember loving it so much because the colours are so rich and the graphics is insanely cool which was a definite plus.

Since the weather in NY has been ridiculously gloomy, snowy and annoying, I thought it would be great to go completely against that and wear some bold colours mixed in with neutral colours of grey and browns.  Of course I added my panama hat because it always seems to perfectly complete a look for me.

This is a typical look I’d wear on the weekends doing leisure activities. Sort of an artsy urban vibe with simple put together pieces and comfy boots.

Casual Daze

Sharing one of my more casual daytime looks. There are times when I prefer to just throw on a baggy trouser and a comfy sweater with chunky boots to get on with my day, this post pretty much explains it all.

I was heading out to have brunch one weekend and because of how tired I was from working late night in the studio I just decided to wear a outfit that was comfortable and casual while still being a bit “fashionable”.  I really can’t wait for it to get warmer here in NY because all I really want to do is pile on thousands of layers and stay indoors which is possibly why my posts haven’t really been too consistent.

Anywhos, remember you can keep up with me on my instagram page @marfarlane. I post real time daily outfits, some of my design work and pretty little things during my adventures around the city.

Yes, The Style Alien has officially moved to a new hosting site and I couldn’t be happier. I delayed posting looks for awhile so that I could get everything perfected and to my liking so I’m exciting to share with you on the new layout of the site!

Aside from that, things have been really hectic between working on independent collections and getting ready to head back to school however, posting on here might be the only thing keeping me really sane sometimes. For this post, I decided to share this look I wore around a week ago right before I went to lunch in Williamsburg with a friend.

It was super cold obviously, so in typical Martina fashion…I decided to pile on a bunch of thick layers to help in keeping me warm in this dreadful weather. I wore a cute long black sweater that have this lace detail attached to it which is pretty cool, then I layered with my royal blue biker jacket as a pop colour  against the black with another layer of my oversized faux leather vest.

Let me know what you think of my new layout!

 I like to have fun with my outfits and sometimes in the Winter, it’s so easy to blend in with the crowd because this time of the year most people are wearing all black with a down jacket or one of those eskimo coats. Not that I find anything wrong with this but, personally for me I like to see how I can bend that trend and still be able to keep warm.

 Here it looks like I’m wearing two layers but in reality, I have a thousand layers underneath my sweater.The Heattech from Uniqlo has been doing wonders for me and I recommend it to anyone comfortable and warm as possible in the Winter. For a fun monochromatic look, I paired my plaid coat from Zara, with this similar plaid sweater and a black and white scarf for an extra added touch.

 I like to wear pants during the Winter months, so I wore these thick ones from Zara that I have to try and stop myself from wearing everyday….can’t get enough of it.

This post was from a few months back in the Fall, when it wasn’t as cold as it is now….I
was complaining about the weather then but I definitely wish I could go back to that time
because its even colder now.
 
 Anyways, I just wanted to share this look with you when my friend and I was playing
around with the camera and then decided that this would make a great blog post. I know
I’ve posted a tremendous amount of all grey outfits in the past but its too good for me to
pass up…especially when I want to find something quick and easy to wear.
I consider this look to be a pretty simple, laidback attire mainly because it’s what I’d wear
on a quick run around the city for errands or so. I’m wearing this warm chunky knit
sweater paired with a tailored and almost “work” inspired pants. I threw on my oversized
neoprene jacket and some comfy boots but I could definitely see myself styling this look
with some cute heels and a leather biker jacket.
Let me know what you think!

 So after a super long break, I’ve finally come back to my usual full time blogging. If you follow me on

Instagram, you’d see that I have been all over the place visiting family for the holidays and also in the
midst of completing a personal collection for my portfolio.
Its been hectic for sure but I definitely missed blogging. I back from the warmth of Jamaica and smacked
in the middle of this crazy Winter in New York. This look is one of the first I wore thus far since being
back and its a been of a clean almost all white look for the dramatics of blending in with that pure white
of the snow.
 
I’m wearing my cozy UNIF  sweater from last season, layered on top of this beautiful lacey dress and tons
of other unseen layers underneath that actually allowed me to weather this look without freezing
completely to death. I added the touch of the plaid as an extra layer for warmth and also to give the look
a bit of colour.
 
I can’t wait to share a lot of Winter looks and I hope where ever in the world you are, keep warm!
